Back in June, Villiger Cigars announced the Villiger | La Flor De Ynclan. It was shown off at the 2017 IPCPR trade show. The La Flor De Ynclan is a special cigar, diligently crafted by Heinrich Villiger and master blender Jose Matias Maragoto of ABAM Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic.

Heinrich Villiger, chairman of the board of Villiger Soehne AG, came across a young ambitious Cuban native 22 years ago in the Dominican Republic. That Cuban, Jose Matias Maragoto was an unknown cigar maker, who was beginning a new life in a new country. Fast forward two decades, the once untested Matias Maragoto is the overseer of all Villiger made product made in the DR. The Flor de Ynclan cigar, is the fruition of a bond between two different men from different backgrounds, over the love of tobacco.

Villiger Cigars produced a small batch of La Flor De Ynclan over a decade ago. Unsatisfied with the final result; the decision was made to cease production. The tobacco was set aside and aged, while Matias meticulously tweaked the amount of the Indonesian, Dominican, and Nicaraguan tobacco within its Ecuadorian wrapper. Present day, the La Flor De Ynclan is what both imagined it could be.

Choice Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobacco, along with a true Indonesian binder, wrapped in a beautiful Ecuadorian wrapper make the La Flor De Ynclan a cigar that has been worth the wait.

The Villiger – La Flor De Ynclan is produced in three sizes in 25 count boxes Robusto 5X50 – $11.00, Torpedo 6X52 – $12.00, Churchill 7X48 – $12.00

"This was a good cigar, but I had higher expectations. The flavors were pleasing, but I felt for most of it it could have used some sweetness. If the whole cigar had tasted like the final third, minus the bitter nub, it would have scored higher for sure. I definitely want to try the other vitolas an...

"Draped in a toothy cover leaf, this figurado's lush draw shows complex notes of walnut and leather interwoven with fruity impressions of raisin, date and dried apricot."

"Villiger brings back La Flor de Ynclan for another go-'round roughly a decade after the cigar's first introduction. Minor tweaks were made to the blend and the tobaccos were aged for over a decade. While I've never smoked the 2005 iteration, I can say that the 2017 blend is quite enjoyable. This is...

"The relaunched La Flor de Ynclan has done a solid job in impressing me with medium to medium-full flavors, clean pepper notes and consistent progressions in flavor and strength. While the cigar didn't task me with keeping a log of non-stop flavors, it never got bland or boring, finding a solid core...

"A great representation of a complex but easy smoking medium bodied cigar. Cigar smokers of all levels could enjoy this without reproach. If this were a couple dollars less, I would have hardly any guilt in buying more than one or two of these at a time. Overall a great cigar from Villiger Cigars th...

"I enjoyed nearly all of my experience with the La Flor De Ynclan and I really look forward to reviewing the other vitolas. This medium strength, medium-bodied cigar would be perfect for a newer cigar smoker. It doesn't have overly tax the palate yet it offers enjoyable flavors. It is also a cigar a...

Stogie Guys – Villiger – La Flor De Ynclan Churchill

"Clearly, this is not an inexpensive cigar. It’s also not a cigar that’s likely to satisfy if you’re looking for a full-bodied experience. But if you seek a milder smoke with well-balanced complexity and ample nuance, the Churchill from La Flor de Ynclan will not leave you disappointed. I award this...
